Redwood City Public Library and Redwood City School District Reaching Out to Kindergarteners with SuperSaturday Event
Redwood City, CA - October 3 , 2005 - Proving that you’re never too young to be a part of the Redwood City Public Library, the Library is partnering with the Redwood City School District to make sure kindergartners and their families can get library cards and start enjoying the benefits of its books and programs. Young and old alike are invited to a SuperSaturday event on Saturday October 15 from 11 am to 3 pm at the Downtown Library, 1044 Middlefield Road.
This special event for kindergartners, their families, and school staff will feature many fun family activities, special guests, prizes, and quick sign-up for library cards. At the event, families will enjoy Chiquy Boom the stilt-walking, balloon-twisting performer, the famous Maisy the Mouse character, arts and crafts, a puppet show, storytelling, and more. It’ll be a SuperSaturday for the entire family!
This campaign specifically targets kindergarteners in order to help foster a childhood love of books and reading, to open the door to our City’s libraries for kids to enjoy its programs, activities, and events, and to provide an opportunity for kids and their families to join together in the excitement and fun of using a library card, borrowing materials, and being part of the library community. And, a Redwood City Public Library card can be used at all Peninsula Library System libraries and online to borrow books, tapes, CDs, DVDs, and more.
The Redwood City Public Library sponsors many free programs for children, families, and adults and is the learning center of the community. More information about library events and services, the Library Foundation, and the Friends of the Library is available on the library’s home page at www.redwoodcity.org/library, by calling 780-7017, or by picking up a Library events calendar in any Redwood City library.
The Redwood City School District works in partnership with parents and the community to help youth develop a positive vision of the future and acquire the attitudes, knowledge and skills necessary to become successful, contributing participants in a rapidly changing world. Its website is located at www.rcsd.k12.ca.us.
